Deadline reported exclusively last week that Sean Teale will topline the Syfy pilot Incorporated. Now the project has its other two leads. Georgina Haig and Eddie Ramos have joined the futuristic pilot, which is set in 2062 in a world where climate change has ravaged the planet, ethical boundaries have been redrawn and American cities have become a mix of the luxurious and the medieval.
Haig will star as Laura, who is married to Ben (Teale), a rising star in a mega-corporation called Chrysalis who is determined to climb the rickety, bloodstained ladder of success. Laura is a successful plastic surgeon who’s also the daughter of Ben’s boss. While Ben and Laura make their home in the lush, manicured Green Zone of the well-to-do, Theo (Ramos) dwells in the dangerous, poverty-stricken Red Zone and might provide a surprising connection to Ben’s past.
Haig played Frozen‘s Elsa on Once Upon A Time, and other credits include Reckless, Fringe, Never Tear Us Apart: The Untold Story of INXS and Syfy’s upcoming event series Childhood’s End. She is repped by Paradigm and Sue Barnett and Associates. Ramos has appeared on TV series including Teen Wolf, NCIS: Los Angeles and Parenthood. He is with Momentum Talent and Stein Entertainment Group.
Created by David and Alex Pastor, who wrote and will direct the pilot, Incorporated will explore the growing influence of corporations and private interests in Washington, the slow but steady dismantling of the public sector and the increase of an amazing amount of wealth by an ever-shrinking minority. The drama hails from Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s Pearl Street Productions, CBS Television Studios and Universal Cable Productions. Damon and Affleck are exec producing with showrunner Ted Humphrey and Jennifer Todd.
